Polack laments loss of Boniface Omondi

Gor Mahia coach Steven Polack says the club will miss the services of Boniface Omondi after the striker Wednesday joined Wazito on a three-year deal.

Omondi, 24 who joined Gor Mahia from Nzoia Sugar in 2017, appreciated his time at K’Ogalo but said his main focus now is to help Wazito win its maiden title.

Polack revealed he asked Omondi to stay but the striker was not convinced after enduring tough financial challenges at Gor during the 2019/20 season.

“We have lost a great player to our opponents. He was my first choice striker and I really pleaded with him to change his decision but he insisted that the financial situation at Gor Mahia played a part in his decision. I wish him the best at Wazito,” Polack told Nation Sport.

Polack has urged Gor Mahia management to hold on to their key players who are being targeted by other Kenyan Premier League clubs.

Gor Mahia captain Kenneth Muguna and his assistant Joash Onyango are reportedly on their way out of the club.

“I’m following two foreign strikers and will recommend them to the club management. However, I still insist that we have to ensure we keep our dependable players and pay them well. It is my hope that the (Betsafe) sponsorship will help us achieve this,” said Polack.

With the exit of Omondi and Tanzania winger Dickson Ambudo, the only dependable strikers remaining at Gor are Nicholas Kipkurui and new signing Benson Omala.

    Methinks we should repeat what we did to former Secretary general George Bwana sometimes back in Kasarani when they sold sserunkuma, ngwetch aduwa, Mbio tuu ndio itachangamsha ofisi ya K’ogalo

    The club has:
    1) 15m from Umbro or Betking which the club can use then refund unless the Betsafe sponsorship is a hoax,
    2) 500k from FKF.
    3) 250k+ from Dolfina/ Augmentin being denied the players & TB,
    4) Branches whose priority is bus repairs. Btw how far has that reached ama money was eaten. Mr Carrilus Onyango Chairman Council of Branch Chairmen and Electoral Board member please shed some light.

    Night running or not our priorities are misplaced.
    Btw TM Jolawi Obondo is MIA leaving the head coach his duties.

      That bus repair was probably a scam. There are plenty of scams by club branches nowadays. A branch member knows a mechanic. He comes up with an idea to raise money to repair the bus. Then shares the proceeds with the mechanic. In reality the club doesn’t even need that minibus. Branches have been given too much of a freehand. They are abusing it. Almost Everyone in Kenya today has become a scammer / hustler/

    Instead of lamenting on the loss of Boniface why not scout around for an able replacement or nature one from what we have already?

      That’s very well but for how long shall we be replacing and nurturing.
      If fact we seem to be nurturing players, FOC, for Simba, Yanga, Nkana and now even Wazito.
      We need a certain calibre ( talent and experience) of players to make an impact in CAL CL. Boniface seemed more of that kind of player than the ones not leaving despite never playing.
